Reproductive Biologist, an Anglo Scottish Australian. Concerned about containing future human population growth as the only way to preserve the natural environment.

The first priority must be to make the oral contraceptive pill freely available to all the women of the world, by taking it off medical prescription.

Australia has one of the highest population growth rates of any developed country; this is disgraceful. We need to give all women Freedom from the Tyranny of Unwanted Fertility.

Until we contain human population growth, global warming will continue unchecked. One simple little thing we could do when we die is to ensure that we are not cremated, but are buried amidst trees, which give us a new Life after Death.
